Opinion: Joeboy's Alcohol Song And How Nigerian Youths Need To Stop Abusing Its Interpretation

Popular Nigerian music artiste, Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa-Donus (aka Joeboy) recently released a song titled "Alcohol", and this song has been trending ever since its release. Aside the fact that the song is melodious, there is also a message in it if I am not mistaken. For me to make this particular message clear, it is important I extract a part of the lyrics of the song.

Below are some lyrics of the song.

“And like that

E go be, you see

You go feel

Because the blessings

Fall on my yard

Blessings fall on my yard

That's why I sip my alcohol

I don't wanna reason bad things no more

I don't wanna go back to where I dey before

Make nobody stress me no disturb me jo jo jo"

From the lyrics above, it is easy to know that Joeboy was trying to pass a message about how things were rough in the past for him and how he does not want to remember any of it anymore. He also used the term “sip alcohol”, which means he is in a relaxed mood and does not want to be disturbed by anyone or his problems in the past. To my understanding, this was the interpretation I believe the song has.

Unfortunately, some Nigerian Youths have taken the interpretation of this song to another level. We now see some of these youths pouring disgusting substances on their bodies in the name of vibing to the song.

I believe that the people engaging in this uncultured act are only tarnishing the image and innocent interpretation of Joeboy's song, despite the fact that the artiste issued a warning asking his fans to stop pouring harmful substances on their bodies. 

These artistes spend hours in the music studio to produce hit songs, it will be discouraging to see the youths turn an innocent song like Joeboy's “alcohol” to a song that is causing commotion online and in our societies.
